FRACTION WORD PROBLEM: Cynthia has 1 1/2 containers of juice. Each smaller container holds 2/5 as much as a large container. How many small containers can she fill?
i think thts right but i have problems with stuff like this so idk if ur really right o_o sorry
Its fine, if someone else got the same answer I'm pretty sure it must be right..
Well, don't you have to convert both fractions to an equal denominator to be able to see how many 2/5 could go into 1 1/2?

I'm pretty sure thats only for addition and subtraction of fractions,, when you divide you just multiply the inverse of the second fraction
OOOOOH, my bad it would be 3 small containers and 3/4 of another small one... right ?
Oh, you're correct. My bad :P
It's actually 3 1/2
Haha, fraction word problems ALWAYS mess me up O.o
